Lemoore police arrested an 18-year-old on Monday who is a suspect in a stabbing death of a man in Lemoore last week.
The Lemoore Police Department said Jaime Alfredo Macias, of Hanford, is in custody. Macias and another man, Issac Gabriel Gaytan, 23, of Lemoore are linked to the murder of a man at an apartment complex in the 800 block of Hanford-Armona Road, police said.
Gaytan remains at large.

Lemoore police are investigating the homicide and working with other area law enforcement agencies to locate the men. Gaytan is considered armed and dangerous and, if seen, should not be approached. Instead, call 911.
The stabbing wasn’t a random act of violence because the suspects knew the victim.
It was the second murder in two weeks in Lemoore. Another stabbing death occurred earlier this month a few blocks away from Wednesday’s stabbing.
